Horse & Hound reports that the legal battle regarding the launch of the Global Champions League continues in court today.
Last year, the Global Champions Tour launched the creation of the Global Champions League, in which riders will compete in "owned" teams. FEI rejected the series though, and in June the Global Champions League filed a complaint with the Belgian Competition Authority in Brussels accusing the FEI of breaching European Union competition law. In its interim measures ruling, the Belgian Competition Authority ordered the FEI to suspend its exclusivity clause with regard to the Global Champions League pending the investigation into the complaint - and the Global Champions League rolled out it's 2016 launch.
According to Horse and Hound, the FEI is now asking the same court to over-turn its decision.
